In Whitpain Township………

The Wissahickon Valley Historical Society will continue its stewardship of the Whitpain Public School 1895 Building for the long term.   The township supervisors Tuesday night approved a 30-year extension of the lease on the old high school at Skippack Pike and School Road.   Their action makes the historical society and the township eligible for more state grants that could be used for the maintenance of the building.   Supervisor Chairman Joe Palmer says the society knows how to get money from Harrisburg.   It just put a new cedar shake roof on the 114-year-old building with the help of state grants and private donations.
